Is there anything more satisfying than sharing knowledge? Of showing someone the ropes, and witnessing their "ah ha" moment? When we discover something new, the first thing we want to do is tell someone. I write about whatever's on my mind - useful technology, API's, interesting bits of code. If you found something helpful, reach out and let me know!
For over a decade, I've been developing software in a variety of settings and industries, focusing primarily on C# and the .NET stack, but branching into Erlang and most recently React. I'm a self-starter and constant learner who always completes the task at hand, with a passion for good documentation, continuous testing and builds, and the Agile process. I enjoy any good challenge, as well as producing clear and maintainable code, and I've got a few side projects going too.
If you've got a question about something I wrote or some code I posted, leave a comment on the post or on GitHub. If it's something general, feel free to reach out here or on LinkedIn. And if something was really helpful and you'd like to thank me, I certainly won't turn down a cup of java! ☕
I don't have time for a lot of side projects, since every single one's like a child that requires tlc forever... but I've got a few!

While holding a full-time job and starting a family, I gradually worked towards my degree, earning it Summa Cum Laude with a 4.0 GPA.
Participated as a judge in the annual student STEM entrepreneurship program, assessing commercialization and business plans in the regional and state final competitions.
Mentor on Exercism
As a mentor, I was able to help others learn more about C#. I get to meet them where they're at, and encourage them to take the next step... and in the process, I learned more too.
Contributor on Stack Overflow
I enjoyed helping others by sharing what I'd learned. Platforms like Stack Overflow allow developers to help one another through the tough spots, and it was nice to give back once in awhile.
